La Croix St-Martin, Abrest/Vichy (ACSI2009-1001) N46.10764 E3.43667

The rain has given way to damp overcast with drizzle as we arrive at La Croix St-Martin, alongside the River Allier. It is a shame, because we are told at the site checkin, that there is a pleasant walk/cycle ride along the river into Vichy. 

We had to pass through Vichy to get here and it certainly looked to be a pleasant place in a sort of faded grandeur way. 

But it is too wet to walk or cycle in, so the bikes stay firmly on their rack and we decide we will stay here for the night and then push on south, with this place marked down as a good possible for a future trip. 

This does have a sort of deja-vue feeling to it, we always have the best of intentions to linger on our way south through France, but almost always we get caught up in the excitement of heading for the sun, and cannot contain ourselves.
